Overview

Progressive rock heroes Emerson, Lake & Palmer were one of the first rock & roll bands to successfully incorporate classical themes into their repertoire, and this video preserves a 1970 concert taped for television broadcast in which the group performed their adaptation of Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" in its entirety. (Interestingly, this show was performed two years before ELP's well-known live album centered around the same piece would be released.)

The picture quality of this DVD is amazingly good, the best I've ever seen for a rock show from the '70s. This DVD is a different concert from the one on the CD. I still think ELP did a great job of covering Mussorgsky's music, and they play with such precision. Synths were still in the early stages in the '70s- it's funny to see that huge machine with all the wires hanging off it. There are some extras- a history of ELP, bios of E, L, P and Mussorgsky, a photo gallery (with fuzzy pictures, unfortunately) and a discography.
